GIFTSYM8 Event Update

Added by Burmester, Elyse 9 months ago

While the current dates for GIFTSym8 are still 27-29 May 2020, we are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and the potential impact on those dates. Due to uncertainty surrounding travel restrictions and rules for large gatherings in the coming months, we are exploring alternative means for hosting this event virtually. This will include identifying engaging methods for delivering a presentation and promoting conversation during and after. More details will be provided in the coming week.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out directly to Ben Goldberg at . We appreciate your support. We couldn't do this without you!

Please stay safe and healthy!

----Original CFP----

GIFTSym8 is the eighth annual Generalized Intelligent Framework for Tutoring (GIFT) Users Symposium. GIFTSym8 invites GIFT designers, developers and practitioners to submit technical papers about their ideas, experiences, and lessons-learned in using GIFT to author and evaluate Adaptive Instructional Systems (AIS).

GIFT is an open source, empirically-based, service-oriented framework of tools, methods and standards to make it easier to author computer-based tutoring systems (CBTS), deliver and manage instruction, and assess the effect of adaptive instruction, CBTS, components and methodologies. GIFT is being developed under the Adaptive Tutoring Research Science & Technology project at the Learning in Intelligent Tutoring Environments (LITE) Laboratory, part of the US Army Combat Capability Development Command – Soldier Center’s Simulation and Training Technology Center (CCDC-SC STTC).

Submission Guidelines

All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. The following paper categories are welcome:

• Full papers (5-10 pages using template) describing design, application, and/or science-based potential enhancements to GIFT.
• Short papers (3-4 pages using template) describing standards opportunities for AISs. This will form the basis for a separate session on the applicability of standards for AIS development.
• Demonstration (3-4 pages using template) showcasing mature use cases that highlight advancements in GIFT’s utility across performance assessments, pedagogical reasoning and coaching, data visualization, adaptive and intelligent training, and after action reviews.

Submission Schedule

Abstracts are required to be extended abstracts (minimum 800 words) covering the focus of your paper, results/conclusions and recommendations.
